ABOUT US

Galerie Elsa Vanier

 

Created in 2003, the gallery moved to the lovely Rue de l’Odéon in the 6th Arrondissement of Paris in 2016.
Galerie Elsa Vanier showcases contemporary jewelry designers whose unique talent gives pride of place to rare, precious or fascinating materials. 
The makers offer a wide array of profiles, from jewelers and gem-cutters to silversmiths, sculptors and contemporary artists who question the meaning of wearing jewelry in the 21st century.

Some of our jewelry artists submit a fascinating response to the question regarding the role of jewelry, its relationship to the body, its psychological impact or what it says of the wearer. Our designers are selected for the emotional charge in their works, their originality, creativity and quality of workmanship.

As we discover new talents regularly, the Gallery welcomes designers for temporary exhibitions alongside a group of permanent “house” designers.

The gallery is an “open-house” where the visitor can freely choose a piece of jewelry from the collections of designers from around the world and meet the artists at exhibition openings.
Every year, the Gallery organizes 3 to 4 exhibitions. Some focus on the work of one designer, other theme-based exhibitions showcase the works of several artists. 

Designer jewelry tell us a lot about culture!
